CES 2022: LG’s New Ranges Redefine OLED TV
The LG television range unveiled today for 2022 boasts brilliant picture quality, more screen sizes and smart lifestyle services. Headlined by their OLED units, it is quite simply LG’s most advanced line-up so far, thanks to powerful imaging technology and improved webOS.
Featuring an advanced panel, the new G2 series models signal the next step in OLED’s evolution, with higher brightness for jaw-dropping clarity and detail on even more realistic images than previously available.
This is all powered by LG’s new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 5 intelligent processor.
The enhanced picture is possible via LG’s Brightness Booster technology, which gives the G2 series improved heat dissipation and a more advanced algorithm.
The G2 series is also bringing bigger size with it, with a new 83″ model as well as the first 97″ OLED, to go with the 55″, 65″ and 77″ already in the line-up.
The G2 series is also offering refined flush-to-the-wall design.Meanwhile, the C2 series serves up six screen sizes for 2022, with the first 42″ OLED TV, perfect for console and PC gaming. There are also 48″, 55″, 65″, 77″ and 83″ models, all with thinner bezels for sleeker design and a more immersive viewing experience.
The α 9 Gen 5 really does sit at the heart of the new LG TVs, leveraging deep learning to enhance upscaling performance and present images with a more 3D effect by making the foreground and background more distinct from each other.
It also expands LG’s AI Sound Pro feature to provide a more lifelike audio experience, allowing the speakers of the units to produce virtual 7.1.2 surround sound.
The personal user experience has also been enhanced, with maximum convenience and easier content discovery thanks to webOS 22, which introduces personal profiles to customise personal viewer experiences.
Users can set up fast and easy access to their fave streaming service, get tailored content suggestions based on viewing history, and receive real-time alerts so they’re always on the ball for their sports teams of choice.
You can also log into your profile from the unit or through an app with NFC Magic Tap.
Engagingly, you can mirror content from one set to another in your house using Room To Room Share, so you can watch cable or satellite content via WiFi without an additional set-top box.
Making the new ranges more enticing, the Always Ready feature turns an LG TV into a media display when not in use. Set up through the Settings menu, and activated the remote, it sees the screen act as a digital canvas to present art, show the time or play tunes.
The new LG TVs are also samrt-home hubs, via ThinQ AI, which gives users voice control plus compatibility with other ThinQ-powered devices.
The new LG TVs are also kicking goals in gaming, allowing users to easily select and switch between game-specific features and display presets direct from the Game Optimiser menu, which offers the new Dark Room Mode, adjusting screen brightness for a better experience when the lights are off.
There’s also a sports mode preset which delivers enhanced details and more realism for FPS, role-play and real-time strategy games.
On top of all this, LG have unveiled an expanded QNED mini LED TV line-up, boasting their Quantum Dot NanoCell technology and offering 100 per cent colour volume.
Plus, the new LIVENow app presents access to online live concerts, shows, sports and other premium live events. It’s basically a gate to new virtual events you can enjoy with friends, fans and family around the world.
There’s also the HomeDance app to help you hone your moves, and LG Fitness to get you in shape and keep track of your progress while you’re doing it.
If that’s not enough to entice, the Independa tele-healthcare service helps LG TV users care for family members remotely or assist seniors to be more independent, making it easy to initiate a video chat with a care-giver or easily access a menu of relevant services.
